Decrepit Birth - Axis Mundi. I always thought these guys were one of the better tech death bands, despite the kinda ridiculous Barnesian gurgle of the singer. This is more or less like the other ones, I guess. I think I'm just kinda burned out on this sound, or maybe it's just that I'm done putting up with the tough guy posturing of extreme death metal. Also, this drummer overplays pretty much all time time. He's good, but he should simmer down.
I know I've checked them out before, but I forget. Your description of overplaying drummer has my interest piqued. Checking it out now.
Gorod - Freaks. This is not as bad as John and Greg have led us all to believe. It's not a standout release for these guys, and it's obvious it's kind of a gimmick release (they wrote and recorded it in a couple months to have something new to sell on a tour with some mediocre thrash bands), but for all that, it's not bad at all. They don't really nail the thrash sound, but that's okay.
Lies! Honestly, even with low expectations going in, I disliked it more than I expected to. I'm not sure I could even finish a single song. A cheap cash-in for the tour sounds about right; seems like very little effort was put into it.
